“The running course will allow competitors to enjoy beautiful views of Brides-les-Bains, but also of the surrounding mountains such as the Grand Bec. As for the cycling loop, we know it well, as it is used by the competitors of our cyclosportive “Col de la Loze by Brides-les-Bains” with the main difficulty being the climb to Les Frasses. In addition to the 7 km climb, the participants will be able to admire the beautiful landscapes of the Tarentaise valley and cross some beautiful villages like Montagny and Bozel. We are looking forward to welcoming this duathlon and all their organization team!”  Mr. Dominique Lesourd, Bridois city councilor and elected official referent of this duathlon.
